Ultrasonic Probe Assemblies for NDT

NTS Ultrasonics designs and builds various types of ultrasonic probe assembly (ultrasonic search unit) for use in ultrasonic NDT and similar applications. We can supply ultrasonic wheel probes (or roller search units), water column assemblies (bubblers, jet probes, squirters), tube inspection probes (IRIS turbines), bore probes, and customized machined probe shoes.

We have also, in the past, designed special transducers and probe assemblies for ultrasonic measurement applications other than NDT. These include transducers for ultrasonic Doppler flow meters, acoustic emission sensors used in timber drying, and a transducer assembly for an ultrasonic zooplankton size measurement system.

Bubblers and Jet Probes (Squirters)

Bubblers and jet probes are special ultrasonic probe assemblies that use flowing water to couple the ultrasonic pulses into the work piece. Bubblers are located close to a surface and flood the spaces to remove trapped air. Jet probes are located a short distance away from a surface and couple through a column of water that accomodates work piece movement or changes in shape. Bubbler and jet probe designs are application specific and are designed to client requirements.

We can build simple bubblers that fit on the end of a transducer, or bubblers fitted into spring loaded mechanical assemblies for following uneven surfaces. We can also provide bubblers with curved shoes for the ultrasonic inspection of round bar stock.

We can build squirters producing laminar flow water jets. Laminar flow is important to prevent breakup of the water column and degradation of ultrasonic performance.
